Former UFC Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov Signed By A Russian Third-Divison Soccer Club


The place where the former UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is heading is finally unveiled. He signed a contract with a Russian third-division soccer club FC Legion Dynamo.

Last year in October Khabib had his last UFC bout in which he defeated Justin Gaethje in the second round via submission. It was his very first match after the demise of his father. Khabib announced his retirement from MMA right after winning this bout

Khabib Nurmagomedov took UFC by storm as he retired without taking a single loss at the organization. He has a perfect record of 29-0-0 with 13 wins in eight years. Khabib’s biggest UFC win came at UFC 229 where he defeated Conor Mcgregor.

Ever since Khabib announced his retirement, the fans are wondering what’s next for him. Back in January, he also posted a tweet in which he said he is a free agent and is preparing for his football debut, and is also open to accepting offers. 

Now, it is revealed that he would play for Legion Dynamo. It was founded as an amateur club back in 2015 and joined the Russian third division in the following year. The club hasn’t revealed anything regarding the contract with the former UFC Champion. 

Now, the fans are pretty excited and are eagerly waiting to see the football debut of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
